in his own defense. his attorneys have stayed tight-lipped so far but there is speculation that bulger will want to testify. he's facing a slew of charges, including 19 counts of murder. if he's found guilty of even some at age 83, he'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison. robert fitzpatrick wrote a book about trying to stop bulger. this case has been full of fireworks. deborah feyerick has been live. bring us up to date on this case. >> his lawyers have asked that the jury be sequestered during deliberations. prosecutors are against it and the judge is going to have to decide that. it's still not clear whether bulger is going to testify. they are going to testify over the period of two witnesses. key among them, a mother whose daughter was killed by bulger and her ex-boyfriend. she's going to be called to testify that her daughter was being sexually molested by the man and therefore he had a greater motive to kill her. also on this list of witnesses is a crime associate who is likely to take the fifth. the reason is that he was actually implicated in one of the murders. now,
, the government, says yes. the defense says look at things like that video. it's all about embarrassing the government. manning was disillusioned with the war, he was troubled by what he saw like the matter in that video, and he wanted the public to know what was going on. that's the defense's case. the prosecution sees it very differently. >> is manning really looking at 136 years in prison, or in the end, could it really be a much shorter time? >> reporter: well, that would be the maximum. you know, there is an interesting wrinkle in that question, because the judge has already said she will knock off about 112 days off any sentence he gets because of the time he served at a military prison here in the washington area in which he was held in solitary confinement, stripped naked. the government again said that was because he was a suicide risk. the judge found suicide risk or not, that was not the correct or appropriate condition for him to be held in, so she's already going to take time off for that. i think the issue is the government will go for the maximum, and the defense will hav
me now, criminal defense attorney page pate and columnist for "chicago defender" welcome back. jason, let's start with the emotion of this case. what that juror just said that she carries this on her back and she will carry this in her forever. >> this is huge and interesting that she is the only juror that wants to come forward and be seen because there is a classic example. a difference between the law and justice. she reflects with a lot of people out there protesting over the last two and a half weeks we're talking about. everybody knows this guy did something wrong, but whether we can fit that into the law, that's the challenge. >> page, like juror b37 she seemed to be confused by the law. maddie said, "that's where i felt confused. if a person kills someone, you get charged for it. as the law was read to me, if you have no proof he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty. did she get that right? >> she did get that right but she started out as a guilty, a guilty on the more serious murder charge. what happened back in the jury room is you had other jurors who had li
a travesty. >> mid win, if you are the defense, what do you do to separate this son from this father? >> what i would do is focus on the son and build him up as a person, and get the jury to understand what kind of person this man is. he's a young person, and i think jury oftentimes feel several thinkic for a defendant who is really, really young. i found that tape to be shocking, saying he doesn't understand why people are so persistent that this is a murder. i think it's the best way to try this case. >> it was chilling to hear the father talk about that like that. joshua young is 17 years old right now. he was 15 when the murder was committed. his appearance, he does seem so incredibly young. that is what the jury will be looking at. a very young man, but how much of the father will they see in the trial? how much of that other image, heather, is likely to get into their heads? >> that's what the prosecution is going to have to do. plaintiffs a suppression hearing to keep out of the some of the statements of josh young. it would be interesting if he admitted to some participation, it will

or what the defense said. as far as whether private manning is traitor, that should not be band aided back. it has a unique stigma to it. unless someone is going to prosecute him for treason he shouldn't be labeled a traitor. i think the claim he's a whistle blower is off based. he may have had what he considers good intentions but at the end of the day it's not especially to every citizen to decide whether to share the count country's crown jewels with others. >> that raises the question. barbara, i don't know you've done a lot of reporting. 750,000 pages were handed over to wikileakss and a lot of that posted on the internet. a lot of it was classifieied secret. it waunt higher classification. based on everything you've heard, how much real damage to u.s. national security was done as a result of this? >> this has been the debate all along and continues to be the debate in the snowden case. how much damage? people will tell you that bradley manning leaked a lot of information but it was information intelligence at a point in time. something that happened in iraq. something that happened

a case that they are going to go forward with and it is going to be very difficult for the defense to counter that. of course, the way the defense always corrects that is to say hey, listen, you got a deal. you are really the bad guy. you made a deal in order to exculpate yourself from some kind of criminal responsibility, criminal liability. this case is very early now. this is moving very quickly. there is going to be a lot of procedural process that happens. this grand jury indictment probably is going to move the case right to trial. but i wouldn't expect to see a trial in this case for many months to come. >> ortiz is particularly interesting in this case because he is the co-defendant that's come forward and said that another co-defendant involved actually told him hernandez is the individual that actually shot the gun and killed odin llyod. his testimony will be particularly crucial in this case. you could see him coming forward and testifying in the hearing. hearsay is allowed. >> we will have to wait ask see what happens. thank you. we will discuss other legal cases later

their death. now, the defense is going to have to try to show, look, there were just too many things that happened to hold him responsible for it. it's unfortunate, but he could not have foreseen this would happen and you shouldn't hold him accountable for this. that's a tough argument the defense has. the state has a pretty strong case because these women would not be dead if he hadn't been acting with gross negligence. >> it is tragic as you say all the way around. we'll follow it and see if it goes all the way through. monica lindstrom, thank you. >> thank you. >>> a graying and humbled o.j. simpson says he is sorry for the crimes that put him in prison. perhaps for the rest of his life. here he was. appeared by video feed before nevada's parole board in support of his plea that he be granted parole for burglary, robbery and kidnapping convictions. simpson is serving a 33-year sentence and would still have to serve at least four years on two other charges, eve fn the board rules in his favor. describing his clean prison record, simpson said he is a mentor to other inmates. >> i th
